Calgary’s Decimate MetalFest Announces 2019 Line-Up
w/ Into Eternity, Hammerdrone, Quietus, Planet Eater, Centuries of Decay and more!
Calgary’s DECIMATE Metal Festival returns for its second year with its biggest line up to date. Welcoming acts from across Canada, this year’s headliners announced are Into Eternity, Hammerdrone, Quietus, Planet Eater, Centuries of Decay (2018 Wacken Metal Canada Champions) among many more on the 20 plus band event being hosted for three days from July 5th to 7th at the County Line Saloon (full day line ups listed below).
Festival organizer Sloan Voxx comments:
“After the bands obliterated the stage last year, we are beyond excited to be able to resuscitate Decimate Metalfest for year 2! This year not only did we want to showcase well-known favorites, and spice things up with sultry Burlesque dancers, but also bring to view many acts our city has never seen. If that isn’t enough, the cherry on top is incorporating an All-Ages component to the festival and being able to feature musicians under the age of 18! We are truly inspired by the growing musical minds of the next generation and of our future and are so happy to be able to include them in this year’s festival! Whether you’re a non-stampeder or an after-stampeder, we urge you to come out and experience and this vastly talented roster of performing acts. It’s our fans that encourage events like this and that help to make them possible and keep our music community alive. Thank you for your support, and prepare for decimation!”

DECIMATE Metal Festival is the brainchild of Sloan Voxx of Voxx Promotions, which is destined to become an annual Canadian metal and rock pilgrimage to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. With the many yearly festivals becoming part of the national metal and rock heritage, Sloan wants DECIMATE Metal Festival to become one of the best-known events alongside the various festivals located within Alberta, and Western Canada. With Voxx Promos booking and promotional experience, and the support of metal and rock fans internationally, there is nothing to stop them from reaching their goal of bringing in the masses and putting on incredible metal and rock festivals for years to come!”
Last year’s inaugural event proved to be a great success showcasing four full nights of metal and rock with bands from all over Canada and parts of the USA!
As part of their fundraising initiative, DECIMATE Metal Festival was also able to donate $685.00 to The Cochrane Women’s Shelter in memory of Bob Campbell.
